How to select multiple objects at the same time ?

L3 Networker

Hello,

I wnder that there is no way to select multiple objects at the same time when creating a group object ? Indeed, when I create several addresses, and I create a group to inculde all these addresses, I have to select one address at a time.

Immagine when you have to create a group that should contain dozen of addresses, and you cannot use the [ctrl] or [shift] key to select multiple objects ?

Regards,

Laurent

This falls into the catagory of a feature request. You should bring this up with your reseller or Paloalto SE. They will then pass these suggestions to Product Management.

Yeah, I feel the same pain when wanting to add multiple objects for NATs and policies. It would be really nice since most of my objects are named to where they line up in the drop down list anyways.

Hello,

Just to let you know that I have raised a FR to my SE, so wait and see...

Hello,

As a workaround, I guess that we could edit the XML configuration file to quickly add objects. However this is not a user-friendly method.

another option is to use the command line

Connect via SSH

type configure <enter>

for an address group

type set address-group name [ address1 address2 ... address last ] <enter>

example set address-group local_networsk [ DMZ Net_10.1.0.0 Net_172.16.1.0 Net_172.16.11.0 ]

for a NAT translation

type set rulebase nat rules name from zone source [ address1 address 2 ... address_last]  service any to zone destination address_external  destination-translation address_internal <enter>

example set rulebase nat rules webservices from Untrust source any to Untrust destination Web_External service any destination-translation Web_Internal

don't forget to issue a commit when you are done.

hope that helps.
